The Christopher Columbus Challenge

When Christopher Columbus was looking for sailors in preparation for his first voyage west, supposedly he posted this:


WANTED:

Bold, brave, adventurous souls to accompany me on an exciting voyage.

  • Final destination? HOME.
  • First few stops? Uncertain, but probably off the maps and charts.
  • Length of journey? Unknown.
  • Hazards and dangers? Many. 
  • Cost to you? Your time, money and maybe your life itself.
  • Rewards? God alone knows, but God alone decides.
  • Opportunity? The one of a lifetime!

~Christopher Columbus, 1491


I am well into my second half. One I have described as a challenge to stretch to significance. I could take a path paved and proven, or I could take a path marked "adventurous". The primary difference is to stretch. To live, lead and influence people to think, speak and act in such a way that it makes a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.

I offer you the Christopher Columbus Challenge... to stretch yourself. 

Where to Start? I encourage you to set and document one stretch goal in each of the seven key areas.

STRETCH GOALS (next 90 days):

ONE FAMILY GOAL:

ONE CAREER GOAL:

ONE HEALTH/FITNESS GOAL:

ONE FINANCIAL GOAL:

ONE PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT GOAL:

ONE FUN-FACTOR GOAL:

ONE SPIRITUAL PEACE GOAL:

"Dream and stretch goals come one size too big so that we can grow into them." - SG

Will you take the challenge with me?
 
Here's to your stretch goals,
